Alarm LED that doesn't flash. Why? Make the thing flash like in any other car and it doesn't drain the battery in a couple of weeks*.
* Some exaggeration there.
Aside from the stuttering intermittant wipers and other things mentioned ( boot release, glove box light etc ) why does it take so long to get heat out of the heater and why does it manage to demist the passenger side first ( yes I know, it was designed in Italy! ). And, again on misting front screen, where does all the crud come from that coats the screen encouraging the misting? My wife's 156 is the same. Every few weeks the screen needs a clean on the inside and everytime it'll be filthy.
Incidentally, on the subject of the aerial with the standard Clarion cassette deck. It may be the removable face that's actually the problem. The catch on the removeable bit is only plastic and wears badly. When the aerial doesn't work, applying pressure on various edges of the removable face will eventually get the aerial to go up. Until of course you use one of the buttons to select a radio preset at which point the aerial goes down again. Fun. I ended up rebuilding the catch with metal epoxy.
